“the wishing well”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2011

Pleasure island amid awful surroundings (railroad in front and crapy buildings aside). Here prawns ( shrimps) are so big looks like to be doped!!!!!  You can choose what you want from the fish desk and also ask the way you prefer to be cooked.......we advice to exploit the grill they have outside !!!!! Wherever you sit in a portughese restaurant you find at the table a variety of appetizers here they were by far the best we had; fresh goat cheese, salad with fish and vegetables, a fantastic ham, a spicy sheep cheese, sardinias salad.....

“Best fish in Setúbal and by far not the most expensive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2011

This is the place to taste the real fresh fish of the Setúbal area.

I've been coming back to this restaurant for years, and I never get disappointed. You have a vast variety of fish, meat and seafood to choose from, and with the guarantee that all of them are fresh, or they won't serve it to you.
